Medical Marijuana Side Effects (Short Term)
Along with its many potential health benefits, medical marijuana also causes several potential side effects. In the short term, medical marijuana can disrupt short-term memory, disrupt the ability to make decisions, and alter mood, making a patient feel happy, relaxed, sleepy, or anxious.
In large doses, some people using medical marijuana will experience hallucinations, paranoia, and delusions.
If a patient has breathing problems like bronchitis, smoking marijuana can make those problems worse.
